Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb skinless and boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 ribs celery, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 carrots, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 parsnip, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme (or 1/4 tsp dried)
  • 6 sprigs fresh parsley, chopped
  • 5 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup dehydrated potato flakes
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt, divided
  • 1 cup nonfat milk
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Directions

  • Heat oil in an 8-quart saucepan or pot over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning occasionally until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.
  • Return the saucepan to the heat and stir in the onion, celery, parsnip, thyme, and parsley. Cook, stirring occasionally until vegetables are just starting to soften, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the reserved chicken and broth. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until chicken and vegetables are very tender, about 40 minutes.
  • Meanwhile in medium bowl, combine flour, potato flakes, baking powder, and ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Add milk and stir until just moistened.
  • Drip batter by dropping 16 heaping teaspoons onto the broth mixture.
  • Cover, making sure not to lift the lid as the dumplings are cooking, and return to a simmer; cook until dumplings are cooked through, 12 to 14 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and stir the remaining ½ teaspoon salt and pepper into the chicken mixture. Divide among bowls and garnish with additional chopped parsley.
